Pigasus Pictures to film in Indiana By Trisha Lee

ing, Harrison, 22, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. Harrison and Mack were friends. “That’s why when I scored I put my hand up in the air,” Mack said. “Just to let my bro know I’m living out the dream he wanted me to.”

Indiana is famous for a lot of things: corn, basketball, limestone, a certain 500-lap race and a nickname for its residents with no origin story. Something that might not come to mind when imagining the Hoosier state is a thriving film industry. Pigasus Pictures is seeking to change that. After the premiere of its first film, "The Good Catholic," the Pigasus Pictures team set out to produce six more films over the next three years. Each story will take place in Indiana, starting with its current project, "Ms. White Light." Filming for "Ms. White Light" started in late October and is expected to take about a month. Scenes will be shot all over Bloomington. "The Good Catholic" was also shot and produced in Bloomington. After the Bloomington premiere, CEO Zachary Spicer, who played a lead role in the film, and COO John Armstrong, toured the state of Indiana to premiere the film and lead talk backs with local audiences. Spicer said filming in Bloomington is easy because it is an artscentered town, and the city has been really helpful with providing street closures, parking and security. However, one of the biggest challenges Pigasus Pictures has faced is that Indiana offers no tax incentives for local film production. In states with an incentive, filmmakers receive tax credits to offset certain production costs. Despite popular films such as "Rudy" and "Breaking Away" having been made in the state, proposed legislation to create such an incentive has never become law. To combat this problem while forming strong bonds with community members, Pigasus Pictures relies on local businesses for many of its resources. For "The Good Catholic," Community Ford Lincoln of Bloomington donated vehicles for production use, the restaurant Quaff ON! donated meals and Fourwinds Lakeside Inn & Marina gave the production team discounted hotel rooms. All the businesses that donated were included in the credits and many business owners hosted or attended local film premieres, so the relationships were mutually beneficial, Spicer said.

Sharing heritage: Student to record history By Christine Stephenson | @cistephenson23

This story is part of a series of profiles of students of Native American heritage at IU. This series is meant to celebrate Native American Heritage Month, which is dedicated to sharing the experiences of contemporary native culture, not just the history. Native American heritage is such an integral part of graduate student Lydia Curliss’s identity that she is pursuing her education because of it. But this was not always the case. “For a long time, my native identity wasn’t a priority for me,” she said. “I kind of rebelled against it for a while because I didn’t know what being native meant to me.” Pursuing a dual degree in library and information sciences, Curliss plans to use her education to work with her tribal chiefs to create digital documentation of her tribe’s history. It's a difficult task considering native history is told through media like song, dance and spoken word, but Curliss said she is determined to give back to the community that raised her. “You can’t just take and take. You have to give back,” she said. “My native community has given me so many opportunities, they’ve put so much into me.” Curliss grew up in Massachusetts where she is a member of the Nipmuc tribe. The name stems from the word Nippenet, which means “the freshwater pond place” because their land is filled with rivers and

ponds. Although Curliss said she could always rely on her tribe for support, she resisted strongly identifying with her native culture until she was an adult. “I gradually figured out my identity on my own terms,” she said. “When you’re young, you understand what you can identify as, but you don’t understand the deeper meaning behind it.”

For a while she was hesitant to learn about her culture because she did not want to bear the responsibilities it held, she said. “I realized that there are certain things I’d have to be ready to talk about,” she said. “You don’t want to constantly be asked questions and address microaggressions, but you have to be ready for that.” One of the microaggressions Curliss said she experiences is when

people assume she is not native because she does not look like a stereotypical native person. After several years, Curliss said she decided to take the leap and learn more about her heritage so she could be a role model for her siblings. If she could be comfortable with her heritage, she said, then she could teach her three younger siblings to do the same. Now, Curliss takes pride in learn-

ing about her culture, she said. She said she especially looks forward to learning alongside her younger sister, Keely, who is 23 years old. “We’re both at a place in our lives where we want to know about our heritage," Curliss said. "We’re ready to know." Keely said her sister has been nothing short of a role model for her and their two other siblings. “She takes care of us and wants to make sure that we have it easier than herself,” she said in a text. Keely said she and her sister constantly exchange photos, modern native art, news articles and stories with each other to share what they continue to learn about their culture. As a farmer, she learns in very different ways than Lydia does, she said, but this does not stop them from supporting each other. “We both value each other and the way we fit into our community so much,” Keely said. Along with her sister’s support, Curliss said she uses her community to overcome the obstacles, like discrimination, that come with openly expressing her culture. “One thing about native culture is that we’re resilient,” she said. “After looking at all the hardship that native people have gone through and continue to experience, there are days when it feels like too much. But you have to keep fighting because that’s the only way that change is going to happen.”

It’s difficult to tell just how many squirrels reside on IU’s campus. For many, their fluffy tails and chattery teeth blend into the background of IU’s picturesque meadows and woods. For the newly created IU Squirrel Club, the critters are more than just indistinguishable animals; they all have their own unique personalities. Fifth year senior Emily Jones, founder and president of IU Squirrel Club, said she became interested in squirrels when she arrived as a freshman in 2013. Jones said it all began with the Instagram account she created two years ago, squirrels_of_iu. Jones first posted Sept. 3, 2015. The photo of a squirrel named Big Mr. Plumpy garnered only 12 likes. A post from Saturday, of a squirrel named Bumpkin, already has 1,107 likes as of Wednesday night. The page has a total of 6,961 followers. “It was kind of a joke, honestly,” Jones said. "There was a squirrels of IU Instagram account but it was defunct. The person hadn't posted in years and I was just like, 'let's get it started up again.'” The club has only just started up this fall. Jones said the club arose from followers on the Instagram page pestering her to start a club to learn how to feed the squirrels and identify them. The club meets every Saturday at the Sample Gates for Squirrel Scavenger Saturdays. Jones said the meet-ups are open to anyone who wants to join. “We go visit individual squirrels on campus and take pictures," Jones said. "It's a chance for photographers, really, to get together and shoot." Jones said another aspect of the club was looking out for the health of squirrels on campus. She said that they are trying to form a relationship with Wild Care Inc., an animal care facility in Bloomington. “I try to look out for them,” Jones said. She said the most important thing to look out for is mange, which is a burrowing parasite that causes hair loss on the animals that can become infected. The group can treat them by putting a drop of the antibiotic Ivermectin on a nut and feeding it to them for three weeks. The club met Saturday for a Scavenger Saturday. Jones was late to arrive, but only because she ran into a group of four Mormon missionaries while she was feeding squirrels. No other members were able to make it to the meet-up, but the missionaries tagged along. Jones brought along a plastic tub of assorted nuts for the squirrels that she had bought from Kroger. “Too much of my budget goes toward nuts,” Jones said. “I feed the squirrels, and then I feed

myself.” Through her years at IU, Jones has gotten to know many different squirrels across campus based on their physical characteristics and their different territories. "You know it's Sampson because he has giant balls,” Jones said. “He's like, very popular with the female squirrels here.” Coming across a squirrel while walking around campus, Jones would make a squirrel call and say the squirrel’s name. To make the call, Jones would click her tongue rapidly, while wagging two fingers to imitate a tail flick. Jones said she learned the squirrel call by imitating the noises squirrels make to one another to indicate where nuts were buried. Jones said she’s no stranger to having a few nicknames. She said at the Jacobs School of Music, she’s known as Squirrel Girl. A few times, squirrels have even followed her onto the bus. "It was either strange looks or, 'Are you a Disney princess?'" Jones said.

“Too much of my budget goes toward nuts. I feed the squirrels, and then I feed myself.” Emily Jones, founder of IU Squirrel Cub

For Jones, being able to connect with the squirrels on campus is therapeutic. She said having an animal that knows her and can pick her out of a crowd is a bit of an ego boost. “It's just a really cool thing to be invited into the squirrel world,” Jones said. Senior Jacqueline Flowers said she joined this fall because of her love for animals. She said that she found out about the club by following the Instagram page. “I really like the stories that they have along with it,” Flowers said. “You can tell that Emily knows the squirrels very well. It’s cool to not just learn about squirrels but kind of follow the lives of these individual ones.” On the tour across campus, Jones spoke about the different personalities of a couple of different squirrels that she’s gotten to know. She has approximated their ages based on their physical characteristics and how long she has known them.

Dan Canon’s slogan, “You Have a Voice,” is a motto he said he tried to live by long before he decided to run for office. Before he became one of the Democratic candidates trying to flip Indiana’s 9th Congressional District, Canon worked as a civil rights attorney. Canon pointed to this experience as one reason he could successfully represent the people in his district. “My objective behind going to law school was to give people a voice within the judiciary, within the criminal justice system,” he said. “My aim with going to Congress is to provide a voice for people who feel like they have no say in one of the major institutions, the legislature, that governs their lives.” This desire to be a voice for people who need help will easily translate into the job of a congressman, Canon said. A willingness to listen, empathy for others and an ability to solve problems creatively are vital skills in both careers he said he already employs every day. Campaign manager Dustin Collins also highlighted Canon’s experience in civil rights law. “It’s cases where you’re going against a broken system, and you are trying to correct an injustice,” Collins said. “He knows what it’s like fighting for Davids against Goliaths.” This David and Goliath metaphor is one Collins said is repeated often within the campaign. Each individual voter is a David in the scheme of the government, he said. “Dan can fight for them instead of fighting for a system, and I think that’s something only Dan brings to the race,” Collins said. As a civil rights lawyer, Canon said many people told him he should run for office because they think that’s the natural next step. Until 2016, he always said no. With the results of the 2016 election, Canon said he thought something inherent changed in politics. “It underscored the need for, I think, representation by real people who understand the real problems that are going on in their communities,” he said. “So here I am.” This sense that politics as a whole is changing feeds into one of Canon’s most important concerns, which he said was people’s newfound ability to selectively consume media. “It’s not like back in the day where everyone just sits in front of the TV and watches Walter Cronkite tell them the news,” he said. “If I’m

hearing news from a source that I find unpleasant or it doesn’t adequately reflect my worldview in some way, I can shut that source out. I think that’s extremely dangerous.” Another factor Canon said he sees as an advantage is he has lived in some part of this district since he was 3 years old. This lifelong experience in the district gives him insight about what issues the people here actually care about and what matters to the people he could be representing, he said. “I grew up here, and I had the misfortune or fortune, depending on how you look at it, of going through a lot of the real-person problems that people experience within this district,” he said. “Having to live paycheck to paycheck, having to see my mom live paycheck to paycheck and worry about where the rent check is going to come from, that’s the kind of stuff that people are struggling with on the ground in Indiana in the 9th District and really all over the country every day.” Canon also said his experience as an advocate has given him valuable experience necessary to work as a congressman.

“He knows what it’s like fighting for Davids against Goliaths.” Dustin Collins, campaign manager

“I’ve actually worked with other Hoosiers to solve real problems and to try to come up with solutions and to try to work to make their lives better,” he said. Olivia Totten, IU sophomore and vice president of Canon on Campus, said this personal experience was what stood out to her about Canon the most. “He’s a homegrown Hoosier,” she said. “This is his community, and he knows it well.” Another pervasive issue Canon said his campaign, and the whole state of Indiana, is facing is low voter turnout. In 2014, Indiana ranked last of all 50 states in voter turnout, according to the United States Election Project. “That suggests to me that there are a whole lot of people who were not motivated enough to get up off their couch and go vote for anybody,” he said. As a result, a large part of his campaign effort is targeted at reaching individual voters and finding out what will motivate them to come out and vote, Canon said. SEE CANON, PAGE 3

AIDS Memorial Quilt includes display for IU alumnus By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

The names of more than 2,300 lives lost to an AIDSrelated illness were read aloud by volunteers Tuesday night in Alumni Hall at the Indiana Memorial Union. Observers paced quietly among the 26 blocks of the AIDS Memorial Quilt on display in the hall as the names echoed in the background. IU’s AIDS Memorial Quilt Committee brought the quilt to IU for the first time since 2007. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the quilt's creation. The quilt began in 1987 in San Francisco as a way to commemorate lives lost to HIV/AIDS. Today, the entire quilt weighs 54 tons and is made up of 5,956 blocks. Each block is 12 by 12 feet and made up of around eight panels. Most panels commemorate one life lost to HIV/AIDS but some commemorate hundreds. Each evening at 7 p.m., the display includes an event like spoken word artist Timothy DuWhite, a panel of people in the Bloomington community who have been affected by AIDS and a documentary, “Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt.” There is also free HIV testing. Genevieve Labe, 30, committee chair of the AIDS Memorial Quilt Committee,

said she brought the quilt to Bloomington for the students. She said the quilt is significant to people’s own health, as well as in its history and political relevance in the '80s and today. “There are a lot of things that students are not aware of, still, when it comes to politics, the history of this country, the history of politics in this country,” Labe said. “It's also about providing them an opportunity to not just

learn about the AIDS Quilt but learn about their HIV status for free.” Senior Ashley Mason, a volunteer at the event, read names in half-hour shifts for two and a half hours. “I feel like every time I read a name I think about what their story was and what they were like,” Mason said. Labe said the blocks on display were selected because they have some con-

nection to Bloomington. She also selected blocks including celebrities like Freddy Mercury from Queen, famous artist Keith Haring and American choreographer Alvin Ailey. One block has a particularly close connection to IU. Jeff Morgan, who graduated from IU in 1981, died in 1993 as a result of HIV/ AIDS. He was 34. Morgan was a finance major and was heavily in-

volved with the IU Student Foundation’s Steering Committee. He was also a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Several of Morgan’s family members and friends were at Tuesday’s viewing. None of them had seen the quilt since it was on display in Washington, D.C., in 1998. Morgan’s block was made up of eight different panels. The bottom-right panel,

created by his sister, Debbie Lewis, had a few symbols to describe Morgan. One was a large sun with the words “you are our sunshine,” written under it. Another was of a golden heart to symbolize Morgan’s “heart of gold.” In the top-right corner of the panel is a small Christmas tree to commemorate his love of Christmas. Brian “Bubba” Smith, 58, was a close friend of Morgan’s in college. Smith said Morgan had a big personality. “He’d give you the shirt off his back,” Smith said. “He was a loyal friend.” After graduating from IU, Morgan moved to Glen Ellyn, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, before eventually moving to Los Angeles. By that point, Morgan’s health was starting to deteriorate. Peggy Smith, 58, wife of Brian Smith and a friend of Morgan’s, said Morgan retained his spirit even in poor health. “He still had a sense of humor, even when he couldn’t walk,” Peggy Smith said. Lewis, 63, said when Morgan died in 1993, her father was devastated. “I don’t think my dad smiled once after my brother died,” Lewis said. Lewis began to tear up as she spoke about what seeing the quilt meant to her. “It’s my way of being close to my brother,” Lewis said.

IU dietitian advises students to plan meals, eat frequently By Rebecca Ellis | @rebeccae_97

The third level of the IU Health Center is busy with nutrition consultations the week before Thanksgiving but not for weight gain concerns, said one of IU’s dietitians. “I think it has more to do with students’ class schedules and availability,” dietician Catherine Shepherd said. Shepherd is one of three registered dietitians in the IU Health Center. She said being a dietitian at IU consists of nutrition counseling, which is a one-on-one meeting with students, as well as

outreach on campus, consisting of health fairs, dorm programs and guest lectures for classes. “I’m just extremely interested in the connection between what we put in our mouth and how that directly correlates with our health,” Shepherd said. Shepherd said she finds

herself giving two pieces of advice most often: plan your meals and eat more frequently. “If you want to eat well, you need to plan it and think about it,” Shepherd said. Besides the business for IU’s dieticians before Thanksgiving, Shepherd said she sees busy times after winter break when students are working toward New Year’s resolutions and before Little 500 when students are getting in shape for the bike race. Shepherd sees about 15 students per week on average. Some students are referred by a doctor, but

Shepherd said many are self-referred. She said some come in about dieting for sports training, becoming a vegetarian, noticing health concerns or utilizing their free appointment that is paid for by the student health fee out of curiosity. Freshman Grace Bertsch, a vegetarian, said sometimes it can be hard to find varying options. She said it is important to have people advising the best options to take and listening to concerns. “People want to eat healthy,” Bertsch said. “They want to have good food.” In many cases, students

enter college and suddenly become responsible for what they eat instead of having their parents prepare most of their meals, Shepherd said. She said it is important to have dietitians to provide education on proper eating habits and a resource for weight management. “College students have unique and diverse types of nutritional concerns,” Shepherd said, adding that one concern is students not eating frequently enough or choosing what is quick and easy rather than what is healthiest. Shepherd said she also often sees students who

struggle with eating disorders and helps them back to a balanced, healthy diet. She also sees a small portion of students with diet-related health issues such as diabetes and high cholesterol. There are healthy options in the dining halls in addition to cooking, Shepherd said. She said in particular Forest, Collins’ traditional dining hall and the Bookmarket Eatery have a lot of healthy, fresh options. “I just review their resources and where the healthy options are on campus,” Shepherd said. “They are there.”

across the political spectrum, find out what’s on their hearts and minds and then see what we can do to change that once Dan’s elected.” One way the campaign is trying to reach more people is by opening a field office in Greenwood, Indiana. Collins said this office would be open

in a few weeks and would act as another point of contact for people all across the district. The idea of successful campaigns resulting from encouraging more people to vote applies nationwide. Especially for Democratic candidates, get out the vote efforts have the ability to sway

elections, as seen in the Democratic Party’s recent success in Virginia and New Jersey. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has also named Indiana’s 9th District a “battlefield district,” according to a release from the DCCC. A battlefield district is one of the most likely

to flip from red to blue nationwide, and this presents an extra incentive for the Canon campaign to reach as many potential voters as possible. Totten explained this idea in terms of IU’s population. “We have a huge group of students on IU’s campus, and essentially if you got all of

them to vote blue, it could flip the district,” she said. Addressing voters’ concerns and motivating them to go vote is one aspect that Canon identified as a deciding factor in this election. “When people actually go vote, Democrats win elections,” he said.

“If you want to eat well, you need to plan it and think about it.” Catherine Shepherd, Dietitian in the IU Health Center

Redshirt senior kicker Griffin Oakes kicks an extra point during the first half against Wisconsin on Nov. 14. Oakes has regained his form this season after struggling last season.

Getting his groove back One year after Griffin Oakes struggled his way to the worst season of his career, he’s found his form again thanks to trust, confidence and a whole lot of repetition. By Jake Thomer | @jakethethomer


riffin Oakes didn’t want to watch one second of film from the 2016 season once it mercifully came to an end. Oakes, the 2015 Big Ten Kicker of the Year, had stumbled his way to making just 16 of 26 field goals in 2016. Out of 109 qualified kickers in the FBS, Oakes’ 61.5 percent field goal rate ranked 98th. He missed more field goals than anyone in the country. But when the offseason came around, Oakes knew that dwelling on what went wrong last season might only further shake his confidence. “It was a waste of time,” Oakes said of his junior year. “I literally re-watched all film from 2015 when I had a more successful year and just kind of looked at each thing I did and tried to mimic it as best I could.” As Oakes searched for the right adjustments to regain his form, he started by addressing himself. Getting in better shape and forgetting about the season that had just unfolded were part of that equation. Forming a tighter connection with his kicking unit was another. When a kicker runs on the field and swings his leg to propel the football dozens of yards through the air, fans tend to stare solely at him. If the ball splits the uprights, the kicker gets congratulatory slaps from teammates. If the ball shanks left or right, it’s the kicker whose head hangs in shame as he shuffles off the field. But what’s important to note, and what IU has shown this season, is the role others play in getting the ball to where Oakes’ foot meets it. A snapper, a holder and eight blockers all work in harmony to provide the perfect conditions for their strong-legged leader. That harmony is only established through endless practice, junior long snapper Dan Godsil said. “Special teams is all repetition,” Godsil said. “The snap, you do it over and over until it’s the same thing every time. The hold is the same thing; the kick is the same thing.” Last season, the field goal unit was out of sorts. There was turnover at both the long snapper and holder position from 2015 to 2016. Godsil took over as field goal snapper after working only on punts the year before. And after four-year holder Erich Toth graduated in 2015, wide receiver Mitchell Paige and punter Joseph Gedeon split time replacing Toth in 2016. Paige wound up as the primary holder for most of the season, but he had many other duties to attend to as a senior captain and IU’s second leading receiver. This severely limited the amount of practice time and the all-important repetition that Oakes could get.

“We weren’t getting as much work as we liked,” Godsil said. “I think trust was a thing that Griffin just didn’t have. You could just tell it wasn’t the routine we wanted.” Throughout Oakes’ inconsistent 2016 campaign, Drew Conrad watched patiently with the rest of the special teams unit while redshirting. He knew he couldn’t play a role on the field that year, but waited for his chance to do something the following season.

“We weren’t getting as much work as we liked. I think trust was a thing that Griffin just didn’t have. You could just tell it wasn’t the routine we wanted.” Dan Godsil, junior long snapper

When spring ball came around and Conrad was splitting reps at holder with freshman quarterback Peyton Ramsey, it was a role the punter wanted to take charge of. He approached Coach Tom Allen the night before IU’s 2017 spring game and spoke fervently about his desire to lead the kicking unit for his next four years at IU. “I explained to [Allen] how I felt about the position,” Conrad said. “He could tell how passionate I was, and he’s a man of passion so he respected that a lot.” Conrad earned the holder job for his redshirt freshman season. He’s still IU’s backup punter, but as a former kicker, Conrad is proud to make his mark on field goals. From the start of summer practices, Conrad, Godsil and Oakes began hammering home their routine.

“We’re kind of hitting on all cylinders right now, so it’s of one of those things where it transitions to practice. We’re very positive, very upbeat.” Griffin Oakes, senior kicker

In its summer workouts, the trio focused on maximizing repetitions with Allen’s mantra in mind — preparation creates confidence. Even if Oakes was taking a break from kicking, Conrad and Godsil practiced snaps while forcing the kicker to stand right next to them and watch.

With each of the three specialists focused solely on his job within the kicking unit, the players’ constant work carried into the regular season, and it has paid off. Oakes is second in the FBS and first in the Big Ten in field goal percentage at 92.9 percent. His only missed field goal out of 14 attempts and only missed extra point out of 31 tries both came on blocked kicks. If Oakes gets the ball past the line of scrimmage, it’s going through the uprights. “We’re kind of hitting on all cylinders right now, so it’s of one of those things where it transitions to practice,” Oakes said. “We’re very positive, very upbeat.” To see the joy IU’s field goal squad is finding in the 2017 season, look no further than Conrad’s “campaign” for the half-joking, half-serious Mortell Holder of the Year Award. On Oct. 31, Conrad brought Oakes and backup kicker Logan Justus together for what they thought would be a simple, fun video. More than 1,000 retweets later, Conrad became an unexpected viral sensation and one of 25 semifinalists for the award, which is in its third season of existence. Former Minnesota punter Peter Mortell created and gave himself the award in 2015. Conrad isn’t going all in on the award, which says it picks a winner based in part on post-kick celebrations that he and Oakes avoid performing for fear of getting a penalty. But the Hoosier specialists are still in it to win it. “I did not expect it to do that,” Conrad said of his video’s explosion on social media. “It’s all in fun. We’ll have to come up with another good video in the coming weeks for my campaign.” There’s more than just fun to be had in the coming weeks for Oakes, Conrad and company. As IU chases its third straight bowl appearance, Oakes is also climbing the Big Ten all-time leaderboard in made field goals. Having already broken IU’s school record earlier this season, Oakes’ 66 career makes are currently good for 7th in conference history. He’ll climb into the top five with just three more field goals. Ask Oakes and he’ll downplay the significance of his senior season, but there’s no denying the fact that time is running out for IU’s most prolific kicker in program history. As the number of games remaining in Oakes’ career decrease, the confidence level is only going up. “Last year Griffin would go out there, and I feel like he would kick and just think, ‘I hope I don’t miss this,’” Conrad said. “But this year he’s going out there thinking, ‘I’m going to make this.’ It’s a very small difference, but it means all the world.”

The Simon Skojdt Assembly Hall crowd during Hoosier Hysteria on Saturday.

Langford includes IU on list By Jake Thomer @jakethethomer

Five-star class of 2018 guard Romeo Langford announced via Twitter on Saturday that IU is among the final three schools he's considering, along with Kansas and Vanderbilt. The New Albany, Indiana, native has been coveted by IU Coach Archie Miller since he took over the program in March. Langford, a consensus fivestar recruit, is ranked as the best player in Indiana and the fifth-best player in

the class of 2018 by both 247Sports and ESPN. Langford took an official visit to IU last month for Hoosier Hysteria, where he was greeted with a standing ovation by IU fans when he walked across the court to his seat. Fellow five-star class of 2018 guard Darius Garland was also at Hoosier Hysteria for an official visit, and IU is on his final list of schools under consideration as well. Garland will announce his school choice Monday.

Earlier this week, the Hoosiers officially signed four class of 2018 commits — Damezi Anderson, Jerome Hunter, Robert Phinisee and Jake Forrester. Each is rated four stars by ESPN, with Hunter ranking in their top 100 overall for the class. If Langford does choose IU, he would be the clear headliner of a class that's already ranked 14th in the country by 247Sports. He is expected to wait to make his final commitment in the spring.


Hoosiers finish fall season at Bronco Super Challenge By Dylan Wallace | @Dwall_1


Then-sophomore Madison Appel serves the ball during the women's tennis doubles against West Virginia in the spring. Appel went 2-1 in singles at the Bronco Super Challenge at Western Michigan University.

The IU women’s tennis team traveled to Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan, last weekend to compete in the Bronco Super Challenge. The challenge featured Notre Dame, Western Michigan, Colorado State, Cleveland State and DePaul. Junior Madison Appel continued her singles success in the fall season by going 2-1 during the event and defeated Western Michigan senior Barbare Eristavi 7-5, 6-0, 6-4 and Notre Dame freshman Caroline Dunleavy 1-6, 6-1, 6-1. These two wins improved her fall singles record to 8-2. Appel has played at the No. 1 singles position for the Hoosiers in her first two years. She also played at the No. 1 doubles spot last year for IU, but her partner graduated. The doubles teams for

this season have yet to be determined. IU Coach Ramiro Azcui has been mixing and matching the players throughout the fall season to see who fits best with whom. Appel teamed with freshman Michelle McKamey this weekend, and the duo went 2-2. A combination that worked well was the sophomore team of Pauline Jahren and Emma Love, who went a perfect 3-0. Junior Natalie Whalen and freshman Olga Zavarotnaya finished 2-1, and freshman Andjelija Bozovic and sophomore Caitlin Bernard picked up two wins as well. There were no team scores kept, but overall the Hoosiers won 11 doubles matches and eight singles matches. The tournament concluded IU’s fall season, and the team will go on a long break before beginning its season with the IU Winter Invitational on Jan. 13-15.

THE KEY TO DISASTER Key could be a major security issue


s one of Amazon’s most recent attempts to appeal to the quickening pace of technological change, it introduced the Amazon Key, a lock-andkey system that will allow the company’s delivery personnel to open customers’ doors and set a package inside their homes. To use the product, you must live in one of the 37 cities where the company has its own warehouses and delivery operation. The product costs $250 and requires installation of the deadbolt. The package includes one of Amazon’s new Cloud Cam home-security cameras. This could have been partially in response to the rising rates of package theft in the United States. And although this could be an attempt at solving the issue, it was a hasty decision on Amazon’s part that has too many flaws. The primary concern is safety. Even with the camera, which allows a customer to watch the delivery live, there is still the fear of a stranger having access to your home when you’re not there. Likewise, the consumer reviews of the camera have been poor. One primary complaint has been that the camera does not provide sound notifications to alert you when someone is moving in front of the camera. Another concern is that the camera requires you


have a sustainable and strong WiFi connection, which is not always the case for some customers. Apart from the $250

initial purchase, there is a monthly charge to keep the camera connected to the cloud. This is rather expensive for a device with an

electronic nature that leaves it vulnerable to potential hacks, which can be carried out with other brands of smart locks.

Overall, consumer reports show that the camera itself is not worth the money when similar home-security systems are cheaper and do

much of the same thing. The Amazon Key also brings up interesting legal concerns. The questions of whether or not police officers would be able to use Amazon Key to enter people’s home and whether or not they would even need to obtain a warrant, spark worry about a customer’s right to privacy and protection from unreasonable searches and seizures. Law professors have stated this device would give owners no reasonable expectation of privacy. The issue that could be argued in court is if a person grants full access to his or her home to a set of strangers, then one must accept all possible outcomes of it. Amazon has previously refused to aid in criminal cases where access to data from its devices could have helped, so there is no reasonable evidence to confirm that Amazon would be transparent about the data it receives. Overall, there are too many flaws with this device to make it worth the money or loss of security. Ultimately, a stolen package is not as bad as the potential for everything else in your home to be stolen. It would be easier, safer and significantly cheaper for people to send their packages to their offices or to a post office box than to purchase the Amazon Key, which is just as flawed as it is expensive.



The top 10 worst acts of the Trump presidency so far

Editorial Board members share their popular and unpopular opinions of the week

Lucas Robinson is a senior in political science and English

To commemorate a year passing since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, here is a list of 10 dangerous, violent, culturally significant and shocking things he’s done in office: 10. Statement on Iranian terror attack When the Islamic State launched its first attack against Iran killing 12 at its parliament building, Trump ditched typical international decorum and in his statement blamed Iran for the attack: “States that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.” Little has been said by Trump regarding the blow back caused by funding Islamic terror groups by the United States and Saudi Arabia. 9. Financial Deregulation Though rhetorically Trump attacked Wall Street during the campaign, his cabinet and Republicans in Congress remain ideologically committed to returning the banking industry back to a pre-2008 free-forall. The administration’s top Goldman Sachs men, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn, remain the driving force behind Trump’s executive orders on the financial industry and the GOP tax plan.

8. Winks and Nods to Anti-Semitism During a scourge of bomb threats to Jewish community centers, the president remained largely silent. Though the suspect linked to a number of the threats was later found to be an Israeli-American, Trump questioned the legitimacy of the threats well before the arrest and refused to condemn them. A statement issued by the White House on Holocaust Remembrance Day also did not explicitly mention the Jewish people. 7. Abandoning Puerto Rico Even though almost two months have passed since Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico remains a humanitarian disaster due to inaction by the U.S. government. A recent power outage courtesy of Whitefish, the shady company given a government contract to fix Puerto Rico’s power grid, has left 80 percent of the island still without power. Due to mass cremations of at least 900 people, we may never know the actual death toll from the storm and ensuing crisis. 6. ISIS Bombing Campaign The amount of bombs dropped by the United States under Trump through July alone was 80 percent that of Obama’s final year in office. This includes the dropping of the largest non-nuclear bomb on Afghanistan. Due

to the loosening of the rules of engagement, civilian casualties have dramatically increased under Trump, numbering up to 4,500 lives in the anti-ISIS campaign. 5. “Both Sides” Press Conference After an outright neoNazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one person dead and several others injured, the president held a neurotic press conference in which he equated white supremacists with the “altleft” activists protesting them. He also stressed the existence of “fine people” and Confederate statue enthusiasts on a side chanting “blood and soil” and “The Jew will not replace us.” 4. ICE Raids and Deportation In what can only be called the “Gestapo-ization” of the immigration system, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has turned into a para-military and law enforcement wing of the Department of Homeland Security. Mass roundups of immigrants have ballooned under Trump, up 38 percent overall — up 156 percent specifically for those without criminal records. Disgusting tactics used by ICE included making arrests at courthouses, detaining a 10 year old with cerebral palsy just released from the hospital and abandoning women and children at a bus station as Hur-

ricane Harvey approached. 3. Empowerment of Saudi Arabia Despite pointing out Saudi Arabia’s possible role in 9/11 on the campaign, Trump’s embrace of the totalitarian, theocratic oil company as president, is revolting. From a $100 billion weapons deal, to escalation of a genocidal war against Yemen, the U.S.’s support for Saudi Arabia has become a horror show under Trump. Currently, the United States is backing the extensive government purge occurring in Saudi Arabia while tensions between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia hurdle closer to possible war. 2. Appointments Not only do many of Trump’s appointees lack relative experience to run their respective government agencies, like Ben Carson or Rick Perry, many were appointed to consciously debilitate and sabotage the functionality of government programs. Environmental Protection Agency Director Scott Pruitt continues to ease environmental regulations despite an alarming report on climate change from within his own agency. Another appointee, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, also remains committed to driving the final stake through the heart of public schools.

Furthermore, the placement of Justice Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court guarantees conservative control of the court for decades. Though without doubt, the most alarming development in Trump’s cabinet is the consolidation of power by the generals, namely Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster. No one currently has a coherent plan for breaking up the military’s control over the executive branch once Trump leaves office. 1. Acceleration of Climate Change A changing climate, the gravest threat to the continued existence of humanity, isn’t even recognized by Trump’s administration. From taking the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord, to opening up national parks and monuments to resource extraction, the long-term consequences from these policies will be faced for decades. The destruction of the past hurricane season, and the government’s inadequate response to the mass flooding, will likely be pointed to in climate history as an omen of the future, a future no doubt exacerbated by Trump’s belligerent climate policies.


Experiencing the holidays from the closet During family gatherings for holidays or events, LGBT people who aren’t out to their families can find it hard to find the right words to navigate difficult conversations that take place. Unfortunately, I am not out to my family, save one cousin who I bared my soul to only to be met with confusion and concern that I was merely “going through a phase.” I can announce that I am still in my phase four years later and going strong. This upcoming time of year is always a hard time for me: family members asking if I have a girlfriend,

why don’t I have a girlfriend and when I will focus on getting a girlfriend. I have to be careful about how I use pronouns when answering vaguely about people that are my type or that I have an interest in. I have to be careful about how I carry myself and the topics I want to discuss. I’m usually confined to vaguely describing the “friend” I went to dinner and a movie with while “watching” football and knocking back my third glass of “eggnog.” So where does that leave us closeted LGBT? How do we navigate the rough seas of holiday small talk with-

out resorting to locking ourselves in our rooms? I have formulated and finetuned some techniques over the past years that help me in tough situations. One: I always have a drink that is near empty in my hand so that I can make an excuse to leave and get more if the conversation takes a personal turn. Two: Aunts, grandmas and distant uncles we see once or twice a year all have a knack for getting down to brass tacks when it comes to our personal lives. So, we have to be especially vague when it comes to these types of questioners. I usually reply with a counter-

question or offer a refute of the agenda that they, in fact, are pushing on me. The last option to getting out of a tough situation is to excuse yourself to the bathroom — a tried and true classic for all party-goers. Last year during our annual Christmas Eve party at my grandparents’ house, I was backed into a corner by a nosy aunt, who was also the family gossip. I was asked about how I plan on balancing school and my relationship with my future girlfriend. So I gave the usual rebuttal, “We’ll see, but school definitely is the most important part of my life,” which is not a lie,

and “I’d honestly rather just get through school right now and not have to worry about it.” Jury’s still out on that one. That is the state of my being during the next four months: constant anxiety. The next few months are stressful for everyone, but especially to people like myself who aren’t fortunate enough to have accepting families. So we do our part to keep family peace, which usually gets wrecked somewhere between a judgmental mother-in-law and the new wife of a cousin. G. Conway Bloomington, Ind.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 A one-time Rutgers University commit, Mack opted to come to IU at the last possible moment on National Signing Day in February 2016. He said Harrison was one of his friends who had a major influence on his decision to switch. “He didn’t want me to stay close to home,” Mack said. “Before, I was committed to Rutgers, but he told me ‘no, go away to school, do something different, be somebody who’s going to stay on the path.’” Mack was born in Staten Island, New York, but moved to Canarsie in Brooklyn when he was 1. He lived in a gated community in Brooklyn, but said that only a couple blocks away, life was rougher for those growing up in the New York borough. “I had a couple of friends that chose different paths than I did,” Mack said. “But I realized that if people chose different paths, you just have to distance yourself and realize not everything is for you.” Harrison was one of those friends. “He told me the life he was living wasn’t for everybody,” Mack said. “It’s something that stayed with me. That’s why I keep trying to work hard, just to let everybody know, my family and friends back home, that I’m going to make them proud. I’m gonna try my hardest.” * * * By the end of Mack’s 2015 senior season at Grand Street Campus High School in Brooklyn, he was attracting national attention. He was named an all-state selection and the All-Brooklyn Player of the Year after helping


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “We couldn’t have made 'The Good Catholic' or 'Ms. White Light' without them,” he said. To grow Indiana talent, Spicer and Armstrong also operate a nonprofit organi-

Grand Street to its first Public School Athletic League city championship. IU, Penn State and Vanderbilt all extended scholarship offers his way, in additional to a plethora of northeastern FBS programs. On his official visit to IU in January 2016, he was guided by then-sophomore wide receiver Simmie Cobbs Jr. “He showed what life could be like playing receiver at Indiana,” Mack said. Fast-forward 18 months, and Mack now lives with Cobbs and senior quarterback Richard Lagow. “It’s fun,” Cobbs said. “We bully each other a lot. I feel like him being from New York, he has this little persona where he’s all loud and about and talking all the time. So sometimes his mouth gets him in trouble in the house.” The trio spends its time together watching “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and eating at Buffalo Wild Wings. “Taysir hates when me and Rich like to have ‘SVU’ marathons and just sit there and watch it for hours,” Cobbs said. “Sometimes we bully him into watching, or we take turns playing Madden. It’s fun times. You get to see the true personalities.”

Mack said he came to Bloomington to find peace. “Coming from the city, sometimes you just want to

step away from everything that is going on,” Mack said. “This is a place where I can focus. People come to college for different aspects. I came to college to be about business.” The 19-year-old grew up in a single-parent household with his mother, Monique, as well as an older and a younger sister. He said his family has served as a support system for him throughout his playing career, even while he redshirted the 2016 season. “Everybody from back home knew what I was capable of,” Mack said. “You hear those athletes that are ‘he could’ve been or he should’ve been,’ my mom promised me to just live in the moment and become something bigger than just a New York kid.” Mack calls home each day after practice. He speaks with his mother, his grandmother and his little sister. “My little sister is my heart,” Mack said. “She’s the first tattoo I got on my arm.”

By halftime of the Charleston Southern game, Mack had scored his first two collegiate touchdowns. It was Monique’s turn to give him a call. Several calls, actually. Before the coaches filled the IU locker room, Mack quickly called his mother back. “I was like ‘Ma, I can’t talk right now,’” Mack said. “They (my family) recorded my first touchdown. It was up on the internet before I even knew it.” Daily phone calls between Mack and his family help bridge the nearly 800 miles separating them. The scholarship offer from Rutgers was the first one Mack received, and he said he planned on staying close to home so his family could see him play. Then things changed. Kyle Flood was fired as head coach of the Scarlet Knights in November 2015, and while Mack mulled his options, he said thenIU Coach Kevin Wilson grabbed his attention. This left Mack with a decision to make, and he went against his prior commitment by signing with IU. “I never just was a follower,” Mack said. “I was ready to do something different and football was my calling. It’s time for me to choose my own path and make my family proud.” His college choice was different than expected, but that isn’t unusual for Mack, someone who embraces the chance to be different. “It’s OK to have a different mindset,” Mack said. “That’s something that stuck with me growing up in Brooklyn, because I have a lot of friends that I lost, and it still hurts to this day, but I know that they want me to do the right thing.”

achieve their goals and overcome the challenges of producing films in Indiana, Pigasus Pictures fosters a culture of collaboration and collectivity. “In this environment, we aren’t just focused on ourselves,” Spicer said. “We’re focused on each other.”

College students also play an important role in Pigasus Pictures productions. Both Armstrong and Spicer are IU Bloomington alumni, and they bring about 20 student interns to each of their projects. They said they believe talent is abundant at IU and across Indiana. IU students

interested in an internship or other involvement with Pigasus Pictures can email assistant@pigasuspictures. com. “We’re creating an opportunity for resources that exist,” said Armstrong. “We’re connecting dots that are already here.”

ceptions, and is also tied with Whop Philyor for the lead in freshmen receiving touchdowns with two. “He’s one of our faster players on the whole team and really encouraged by his progress,” IU Coach Tom Allen said. “He’s a guy I identified through fall camp that I really thought had done some good things in the spring, had a good summer, did some good things in fall camp.” Season-ending injuries to juniors Donavan Hale, J-Shun Harris II and Nick Westbrook have allowed Mack to receive more playing time than previously expected. “I challenged Taysir to rise up,” Allen said. “We had some injuries at that position and so that’s what freshmen are supposed to do. He responded.”

The fun times have continued on the field for the three players recently. The Nov. 11 victory at Illinois saw Mack

lead IU with six receptions, while Cobbs caught his teamleading seventh touchdown of the season and Lagow posted nearly 300 passing yards. Even when freshman Peyton Ramsey was the starting quarterback for IU for four games in the middle of the 2017 season, Mack had a strong connection with IU’s signal-caller. Both Mack and Ramsey redshirted the 2016 season, which meant they spent a lot of time together as part of the Hoosiers’ scout team. “We got to really know each other,” Mack said. “I got to know his strength points. Just building that chemistry.” Having a relationship with both of IU’s starting quarterbacks has allowed Mack to flourish this season. His 111-yard receiving day against Charleston Southern was the first time since 2008 an IU freshman had more than 100 yards receiving. The speedy wideout is second among IU freshmen in re-

zation called Project Pigasus. The organization sponsors a state-wide short film writing competition for high school students, and the winner of the competition has his or her script produced by the Pigasus Pictures team. “The whole point is to educate and inspire the next

generation of filmmakers, so we can retain the talent in Indiana,” Spicer said. Armstrong said despite some Midwesterners’ attitudes that things from the coast are inherently better, he sees a lot of potential in the flyover states. The producers said to

Local charities help out during holidays Lauren Fazekas

With Thanksgiving steadily approaching, many students and staff will be heading to wherever they call home to relax, eat and spend time with family without the worry of classes. For those staying in Bloomington, the extra time off lends opportunities to volunteer at local food banks and soup kitchens to help members of the community who may be in need this holiday season. According to, 1 in 6 people in the United States face hunger, 49 million Americans have a hard time putting food on the table and more and more people are relying on donations and volunteering provided by food banks to survive. Bloomington has many opportunities for people who wish to volunteer and donate, according to


Hoosier Hills Food Bank volunteer Tre Corley loads bags of potatoes, which will be sent to Pantry 279, a pantry run by Girl Scouts troop 69279. The food bank began in 1982 and distributed nearly four and a half million pounds of food in 2016.

Bloomington Volunteer Network’s website. Places like the Community Kitchen of Monroe County will be open on Thanksgiving to serve meals to those in need.

“On a weekly basis, we are open Monday through Saturday, so as far as warm meals, we do just over 2,000,” said Tim Clougher, assistant director at the community kitchen.

“When you take into account the meals we do for after-school programs for kids, backpack buddies and other programs we have, it’s probably quite a bit more than that — I’d venture to say probably about twice that.” Clougher said people who are looking to volunteer can call the Community Kitchen’s phone number to see when shifts are available to be covered, and if there isn’t a chance to volunteer, grocery cards and monetary donations are accepted by the kitchen as well. Another opportunity for volunteering comes from a local food pantry, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. According to its website, the food pantry strives to increase access to healthy foods for all people in need. “We see about 3,800 people a week. On average, that is a little

bit over 700 a day,” said Thomas Vanderplough, the volunteer coordinator for MHC. According to the food pantry's website, MHC relies on volunteers and community support to keep the programs and opportunities it provides up and running. "To volunteer in the pantry, you just have to complete a volunteer orientation first," Vanderplough said. "After that orientation, shifts usually run two hours, weekly shifts if you can." Vanderplough said there will be a volunteer orientation on Nov. 20 at 4 p.m. The Community Kitchen is located at 1515 S. Rogers St. and will be open Thanksgiving day to serve those in need. MHC is located at 1100 W. Allen St. and will be serving patrons through next week as well, according to their websites.

Try new Turkey Day traditions By Katie Chrisco and Eman Mozaffar @KatieChrisco @emanmozaffar

It’s almost Thanksgiving. Time to brine the turkey, pop some cornbread in the oven and stir up some mashed potatoes. Or, if you lack the motivation, don’t. Many chain restaurants across the United States stay open on turkey day so your own kitchen doesn’t have to. Here are five located in Bloomington and beyond if you can’t find the courage within yourself to cook. Applebee’s Ah, Applebee’s. Your local neighborhood’s favorite restaurant built around its head chef: a microwave. Certain locations are offering a special Thanksgiving feast with all the staples — even green beans. Check with your local restaurant for hours and availability. If you happen upon an Applebee’s, you can also mix it up and order Thanksgiving-inspired combinations, like a handheld turkey sandwich or some trusty Green


Bean Crispers. If you’re a millennial, you’ve probably been accused of killing the industry of which Applebee’s is a part. Pay your dues this holiday season and help them heal. Spend your Thanksgiving evening here. Bob Evans Like Cracker Barrel, Bob Evans also offers to-go meals. We don’t know who is ordering these, but we express our deepest condolences to them. It doesn’t take an on-therecord exchange with a Bob Evans employee to know that everything in these meals comes from microwavable bags (including the turkey). Unless you’re ordering breakfast, that is. Save some time by ordering the Turkey Farmhouse Feast. Get all the fixings — mashed potatoes, slow-roasted turkey breast and green beans with ham — packed cold and ready to heat in your humble home. Fortunately, with Bob Evans, you’ve got options. You can upgrade to a Premium Farmhouse Feast, or you can get the ham alternative to your typical fare. SEE CHAINS, PAGE 7 MOVIE STILLS DATABASE

Mob drama "The Godfather" came out in 1972 and became an instant classic. It might just be the perfect Thanksgiving movie, too.

“The Godfather” is a classic By Jesse Pasternack @jessepasternack


Indiana’s most beloved holiday tradition!

Thanksgiving seems to get short shrift when it comes to movies. There are dozens of Halloween and Christmas movies, but besides “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” and “Hannah and Her Sisters” there are not a lot of classic movies set during Thanksgiving. A perfect example is “The Godfather." AMC often shows this Oscar-winning classic on Thanksgiving. Dev on “Master of None” once said his dad watches it every year on Thanksgiving before falling asleep. So what is it about this film that makes for good Thanksgiving viewing? “The Godfather” tells the

story of the Corleone crime family from the mid-1940s to early '50s. Aging boss Vito Corleone rules over his empire as his three sons wonder who is going to take his place. The youngest son, Michael, begins to cautiously assume this role in the midst of a gang war. Thanksgiving has transcended its historical origins to become a celebration of family. It allows people to sit down and rejoice in the ties that bind them to others. Director Francis Ford Coppola’s film is nothing if not a celebration and critique of those familial links. Michael draws love and strength from his family. But his commitment to them increasingly takes precedence

over his morals and adherence to laws. His character arc is one of the better-crafted tragedies in American movies. “The Godfather” has an epic scope that is fitting for a holiday that seems to encourage excessive eating. Director of photography Gordon Willis gives almost every shot the quality of a luxurious Renaissance painting. Composer Nino Rota’s melancholic score is beautiful and expansive. This movie has a lot of excellent subplots that contribute to its 2-hour-and55-minute run time. Its episodic structure makes for a richer viewing experience and deepens the characters. A good example is a sequence set in Los An-

geles that establishes the Corleone family as a more menacing force. “The Godfather” has an excellent cast. Marlon Brando gives a legendary performance as Vito. Al Pacino showcases the excellent acting techniques he would use throughout his career in his role of Michael. Richard S. Castellano is effective and frequently funny as Peter Clemenza, a high ranking member of the Corleone crime family. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the ties that create a family. This makes any good movie about family a great holiday watch. But there is still something special about spending Thanksgiving with “The Godfather.”

Professor discusses life of Hoagy By Emily Berryman @Ember_Otter

Nestled in the gardens between Showalter Fountain and the IU Cinema, bedecked with seasonal flowers, is a statue of a man fiddling around on the piano, struggling to write the song “Memphis in June.” The man is jazz pianist and composer Hoagy Carmichael. In 1921, a young Carmichael made his way to the halls of IU. Already familiar with jazz and a habitual musician, he spent his time seeking out pianos and venues that would let him play. According to John Hasse's online biography of Carmichael, the musician formed a band during his time at IU, Carmichael's Collegians. Together, they traveled Indiana and Ohio to play for dancers and at fraternity parties. Luke Gillespie, jazz pianist and IU professor, said Carmichael wrote his most famous tune, "Stardust," at what is today known as BuffaLouie’s. “It had an upright honkeytonk piano, and apparently, he wrote the song there," Gillespie said. “Most people don’t realize it was written as a jump tune.” Although a jump tune is an up-tempo song you can dance to, Gillespie said he doesn’t know anyone who has recorded it as anything but a



Cracker Barrel If you’re too lazy to cook but still want to enjoy your Thanksgiving meal from the comfort of your own couch, Cracker Barrel’s Heat N’ Serve Holiday Family Meal to Go is probably your best bet. It’s promised to go from the oven to your dinner table in two hours or less. We haven’t put their claims to the test, but we’re going to take their word for it. If you can’t even handle

ballad. He said the slowing of the tune can be attributed to the Isham Jones Orchestra, which played a slow version of "Stardust" only a few years after the song’s publication. While most jazz composers of the day were writing songs for Broadway, Carmichael was writing individual songs. In fact, Gillespie said Carmichael’s songs were difficult to sing. “I’ve noticed his songs have a lot of chromaticism in them,” Gillespie said. This means there are lots of notes which differ from what you would expect on a normal scale, he said. “The songs are better for instrumentals," Gillespie said. "That was part of his appeal and part of his criticism, it's too complex.” The Great Depression marked the end of the jazz age. Nevertheless, jazz remained popular for another few decades, allowing Carmichael’s career to peak in the 1940s. Today, jazz records make up only two percent of the music industry, Gillespie said. Gillespie said during a dinner with Carmichael’s son, Hoagy Bix, Bix told a story about his dad sitting down to play at a public establishment in New York City. He sang and played his songs, but no one paid attention. At that point, Gillespie said Bix remembered his dad heating up a pre-prepared meal, there’s also the Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing Family Meal to Go, which comes “hot and ready to serve.” And if you can’t figure out how to correctly order such a sophisticated meal, Cracker Barrel includes an extremely helpful FAQ on its website. All’s that left to say about this is that there’s a lot to be thankful for this year. Denny’s Let’s face it: under normal circumstances, you don’t go to Denny’s. You end up

saying, "I’m done. It’s over." “As far as Bix knew, he never performed in public again,” Gillespie said. “I believe it was in the 1960s, rock 'n' roll had taken the world. It’s sad because we jazz musicians still play his songs.”

Although jazz is not as popular as it once was, Gillespie said he finds hope in an unlikely place: the education system. “Colleges, high schools, even some middle schools have jazz bands, and I would

like to see it in elementary schools, too,” Gillespie said. “Jazz is a language. Music is a language. I try to teach my students to use it to express themselves.” Gillespie said even if you’re not sure what the artist

is saying, they can make you feel something. “Jazz is the art of the moment,” Gillespie said. “It raises the significance of that moment to its highest point because what you are doing is a creative act on the spot.”

at a Denny’s somewhere, somehow. If this is your fate on Thanksgiving, rest easy because Denny’s is open 24 hours, 365 days a year, and this holiday is no exception. If you need your fix of staple Thanksgiving foods, Denny’s offers pumpkin pie. But if you prefer to stick to true Denny’s form with a breakfast item, there is a (new) Pumpkin Cream Pancake Breakfast. Not sure what pumpkin cream is? We aren’t either, but we’re putting it on our readers

carved, carved smoked and sliced turkey. If you hate Thanksgiving turkey like many swaths of Americans, there are some less mainstream choices like pizza and smoked baby back ribs. Grab a plate, get in line and eat yourself sick on an endless buffet. Your stomach might hate you, but not as much as your family will after you suggest going to Golden Corral on this special day.

If your idea of celebrating a holiday centered around home-cooked food includes to-go meals, maybe you don’t understand what this holiday or America is about. Or maybe you understand it better than all of us. You’ll be saving a lot of time and hard labor. Regardless, if you’re about to choose a sit-down restaurant that serves prepackaged meals under the guise that it’s homemade, maybe you should stay in and pop a few Lean Cuisines in the microwave instead.

Golden Corral Golden Corral offers not one, not two, but three different kinds of pie for its Thanksgiving buffet. Wait, actually, cheesecake is not a pie. So make that two different kinds of pie: pumpkin and pecan. The Thanksgiving Day Buffet also includes holiday classics like green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and turkey served in a variety of styles including
